The Empire of Steel

Book Five

The Temple on the Ocean


First Italian edition published in may 2020.

This fifth novel of the Saga is built around two important strands, one about religion and the other typical of Science Fiction, alongside the usual political and family events and wars.

Its time span will be approximately a dozen years, until the children of the two leading couples become of age, which at the time was 16.

The seven original characters will have relevant roles here but, in some chapters, a truly particular one will enter the scene and give a new, different dimension to the novel.



The title

The title is inspired by a temple described early in the novel, but also it want to show the meditative and religious character of a noticeable part of the events.
